The quantrids meteor shower is upon us and should produce plenty of shooting stars. They will be emanating from northish in the sky so look to 10 o’clock from the first star in the handle of the plough, that’s if Monday night is reasonably clear. Under good conditions falls of a hundred an hour have been counted so fingers crossed and we all get to see loads!!. The show is only just beginning as darkness fades for dawn on Tuesday bring the long awaited partial solar eclipsed sun rise. At least two thirds of the sun should be in shadow as the sun crests the horizon about 8.45….with luck it will be one of those once in a lifetime happenings that everybody will get to see.
